A pre-sale survey available

     "Roger Hewson’s racer-cruiser gets high marks for performance.  In 1985, after nearly a decade of building the popular Sabre 34, Sabre Yachts significantly revamped the design. The resulting boat—beamier, roomier, faster, and more powerful than the original—is usually referred to as the Sabre 34 Mark II." Practical Sailor

     Escape the Madness is a nice example of this very popular design. Her bright, airy and open interior gives a nice roomy feel to the salon. The cockpit has good space that is well protected with the large dodger. This is a fantastic sailing yacht with many nice upgrades. She is in the water and ready to cruise now.
